    oryzias woworae is said to be a stunning little fish. it is. but: all these pictures with splendid blue-glaring males are faking. like some danios it’s due to the flash. so it’s not easy to get “true” pics.
    anayway: they are charming; and “easy” and cooperate well on the set …
    enjoy the pics















    fresh eggs are transparent. later they darken

    Hi, well I got some of what are supposed to be true woworae just last week but they are fry and will take some growing on. I also was given a second species, very similar called Blue Ricefish so hopefully get some pics of them up as they are much larger.

    It could be interesting to know Charles. I think Señor Coelacanth has both forms??

    hi Malti
    you mean the degree of diffilculty?
    put at least a male and a female together. some swimming plants. wait untill you can get some blue-sparkling-eyed fry with a spoon/leave them there.
    all in all: easy?
    or you do all which could be done: looking for eggs, separating eggs and adults, nourishing the fry with rotifers and so on.
    all in all: not so easy?
    untill you are not going for great numbers you can take the easy way – as I do
    cheers Charles

    if I only knew /rolleyes.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:rolleyes:” border=”0″ alt=”rolleyes.gif” />
    ok: 8-10 kH, 24-25°, pH about 7.2 with aeration.

    that’s great Keith
    I have tried both “systems” now.
    bad news: they like eggs to carry and to eat.
    so in a tank with just a plant or two they get almost every egg (and fry too?), thererfore only a few would survive. in a 30 lt-tank with dense ceratophyllum demersum it’s better. as they carry really every now and then new eggs the “system” with seperating the adults from the stripped eggs is better, but at least three tanks are needed, because the growing fry would take the smaller siblings for food.
    I tried to get a pic of some 3 mm youngsters in the second tank. I’ll do better. promised
    edit: some better pics

    cheers Charles
